Gently glide down the Dordogne River and view castles, La Roque-Gageac, Beynac, and other old villages. Beautiful stretches of calm water and mini-rapids make this canoeing experience available to people of all ages and it is a nice family activity. Drifting down the Dordogne is relaxing way to spend a day because the river is peaceful and quiet. Motorboats do not have access to this section of water, and the only person you might see is a fisherman, or other people canoeing and kayaking. Most renters operate daily in July and August, and on demand in May, June, and September, but are closed during the rest of the year.

A member of my family recently moved out here, and every time I vist, I feel a stronger connection and affinity with the place. In addition to the vast array of activities on offer-canoeing, walking, browsing the many marvellous Chateaux's, a holiday in the Dordgone offers time to recharge your batteries and reconnect with what is really true about life. Free from pretentions and drenched in beautiful scenery, just a few days in the

Dordogne can lift your spirits and help you reconnect.
